Women of Peace Award

The Women's Peacepower Foundation, Inc. gives Women of Peace Awards to women and girls involved in grassroots projects who are working to bring peace to the everyday lives of women and their families. The majority of our awards are for activities that fall into two broad categories: violence against women and waging peace.

The Women of Peace Awards have been given to scores of ordinary/extraordinary women around the world who work without funding or recognition for the universal goal of peace, fairness and true justice within the lives of women and their families.

Peacepower awards activists in the US and other countries that:
  • demonstrate how violence against women and children is at the root of other forms of violence that tear at the fabric of the world
  • hold officials, institutions and governments accountable for their brutality against women and children
  • teach future generations the power of non-violence
From the foundation’s beginning in 1998, WPPF’s awards have been given to help make our homes, streets, and schools safer and more peaceful. The awards have been given to selfless, passionate women and girls who are working to promote peace. They receive a small monetary award, a certificate, award necklace, attendance at a workshop on non-profit development and receive technical assistance to help their project grow to reach more people. The purpose of the organization is to encourage grassroots projects to continue their life-saving work. WPPF seeks out small, under-funded peace activism projects. The foundation accepts recommendations for winners of Women of Peace Awards.

THE WOMEN’S PEACEPOWER FOUNDATION, Inc. was established in 1988. In the past PEACEPOWER has provided funds to innovative programs and projects that are working on finding solutions to the violence found in the home, in our schools, in our streets and in our environment.

The Women of Peace Awards are designed to recognize individuals that are working on cutting edge programs, or have created new ways of thinking about ending domestic violence or waging peace.

In keeping with PEACEPOWER goals, we want to publicly recognize women who are working in their communities to improve the lives of battered women and their children. We are looking for everyday ordinary women who are the unsung movers and shakers of the communities in which we live. The kind of person we want to hear about may be a volunteer who initiated a new program, or perhaps your nominee has recognized a need, and worked on creating a solution. Possibly you know of someone who has taken a stand on an important domestic violence issue in the workplace. Nominees do NOT have to be official volunteers or employees of a domestic violence program.

All Women of Peace nominees will receive a letter telling them about their nomination and a certificate. The recipients will be honored through a small financial contribution, a minimum of $250 made to the non-profit organization of their choice that is working to promote peace.

How to nominate an Women of Peace:
Send a completed nomination form to the WOMEN’S PEACEPOWER FOUNDATION, INC. telling us why you think this person is a candidate to be a Women of Peace.
